Dedication 

To Mrs. Ella Magee, who has made 
possible, for Taylor students, the 
superior and unusual advantages 
of the magnificent Wisconsin- 
Campbell-Magee Dormitory, which 
her donations have provided. 





Foreword 



We realize that the Gem of 1933 
is vastly different from any pre- 
vious book. No attempt has been 
made to carry out any special 
theme because we believe that our 
school life is the only theme with 
which we are concerned, and there- 
fore we would ask you to consider 
the art work as having only decor- 
ative purposes. 



This has been an unusual year and 
we have faced many handicaps. 
Every effort has been made to keep 
within the limits of our budget and 
avoid placing any unpaid expenses 
on the school. This book repre- 
sents our best efforts, and we pre- 
sent it to you without apologies. 



Where youth meets youth 
And cares are free.

I went to church 

An organ played 
Tall candles marched 

In white parade 
Around the altar 

Through stained glass 
I saw the king 

Of battles pass. 
Half afraid, 

I could not say 
"My Master" 

In a quiet way. 

And I who know 

A simple God 
Who puts brown seeds 

In rain-wet sod 
Who stoops to hear 

A small child's rhyme 
Gone up in prayer 

At candle time 
Did not hear 

The God I knew 
Though I knelt 

And wanted to. 

I went up 

A windy hill 
When the dusk 

Was blue and still 
And sat awhile 

And watched a star 
Heaven wasn't 

Very far. 
I sang no songs 

I made no prayer 
I think God saw me 

Sitting there. 

— Helen Welshimer.

Senior Reminiscences 



Four years have nearly elapsed 
since we came to Taylor and the 
Class of 1933 finds itself nearing 
the end of its college career. These 
years have meant much to us, and 
as we think back over them we 
know that they have added much. 
We know, too, that as we leave we 
will lose something that can never 
be returned, and as we go our 
hearts are filled with thoughts of 
college days, and college friends, 
things that will be left behind. 
But let us turn from melancholy 
thoughts, and remind ourselves of 
some of the pleasanter things that 
have come to our lives. First of 
all, in our Freshmen year we 



learned to wear green hats becom- 
ingly, and then we followed in our 
Sophomore year with greater 
laurels. We carried off the honors 
in the track meet, and came within 
a breath of taking the basketball 
trophy. 

Last year the Junior-Senior Ban- 
quet crowned our stay at Taylor 
and this year, in addition to this 
same event, we look toward Com- 
mencement and new life. But in 
addition to pleasant events, and 
pleasant thoughts these years have 
given us pleasant dreams for the 
future, and we look with expectant 
hearts towards the possibilities of 
successful lives.

Juniors Have Prosperous Year 



The Junior Class occupies a most 
enviable position in the school. We 
have lost the greenness of the 
Freshmen. The frivolity of the 
Sophomore has been tempered into 
a good jolly spirit. And then to 
climax it we have been in contact 
with the dignity of the Seniors long 
enough to gain a degree of poise. 
Under the leadership of our Presi- 
dent, Marvin Schilling, we feel that 
we have been loyal Juniors during 
the past year. 

In keeping with our jolly spirit we 
spent many pleasant hours in fun 
making. One of these never-to-be- 
forgotten times was the merry 
sleigh ride after which our spon- 
sor, Dr. Furbay, let us convert the 
biology laboratory into a recreation 
hall. Sandwiches and coffee never 
tasted better ! 



The dignity of our group was up- 
held by the Junior-Senior banquet. 
The Seniors started out not know- 
ing whither they were going, but 
they soon found themselves in the 
Spencer Hotel in Marion, where all 
enjoyed a banquet which even sur- 
passed the expectations of the 
Juniors. 

In keeping with the true spirit of 
Taylor, we flavoured our class diet 
with a generous sprinkling of 
spiritual life. Much of the success 
of the class is attributed to the Fri- 
day noon prayer and fellowship 
services. 

As we look back we are happy, for 
our group has achieved success; 
many of the members have held 
important offices. As we look for- 
ward we expect to do even greater 
things next year as Seniors.

Sophomore Class Is Victorious In Athletics 

The Freshman class that entered Taylor in the fall of '31 was known 
on the campus as the "great green wave" because it was the largest class 
in the history of the school. Since that time we have made the class influ- 
ential in the activities of the school. 

As Freshmen we did riot feel ashamed of our green apparel, but strove 
to give it a place of prominence on the campus. How well we succeeded 
could be attested by the envious looks of the upper classmen following the 
class basketball series in which we won every game. This year we did the 
unusual by again capturing the series in three straight games, thus making 
one of the best records of any class in recent years. 

As Sophomores, under the efficient leadership of our president, Har- 
rison Dawes, we have made much progress. Not only have we been out- 
standing as a class in athletics, but we have taken a prominent part in other 
campus activities as well. The Sophomore contest Echo placed third in 
the school rating, although it was only thirty points below the winning 
paper, which was exceptionally high, and this shows the high quality of 
the Sophomore paper. The Easter breakfast provided an impressive pro- 
gram, an ample menu, and altogether was one of the best breakfasts ever 
served. 

As we look to the future we anxiously anticipate the new honors and 
achievements which will be ours as Juniors. Much of our progress has 
been due to our able and willing sponsor, Professor Cornwell, who has en- 
tered whole-heartedly into all of the interests and activities of the class.

Freshmen Undergo Many Transformations 

The autumn of 1932 found upon Taylor's campus a group of fifty eager 
Freshmen assembled from over a wide area. Representatives came from 
the backwoods of upstate New York and the mosquito-infested swamp land 
of New Jersey, from the rolling plains of the Middle-West, and from the 
foothills of the Himalayas. 

At first confusion reigned amidst the activities of Freshman Day, 
registration , receptions, dining hall regulations, and the Junior Rules com- 
mittee. But out of chaos there finally came a semblance of order. A few 
were early victims of the English entrance examinations while others fell 
before the more subtle attack of Dan Cupid. 

The Freshman Contest Echo, although receiving last place in the stand- 
ing, was well above the corresponding paper of former years. Hard hit by 
ineligibility, the Freshman boys' basketball team lost all three games in the 
inter-class series, but the girls were somewhat more fortunate, losing the 
championship to the Juniors by only a few points. 

During the year much progress has been made. There has been a good 
class spirit displayed, and everyone has cooperated whole-heartedly in all 
the activities of the class. The all-school April Fool's party, which was 
staged by the Freshmen, was one of the best events of its kind held on the 
campus. 

There is still a question in the minds of many of the Freshmen as to 
whether or not four short years will actually transform them into sauve, 
blase, sophisticated seniors, but off to an auspicious start under the able 
leadership and guidance of its president, Herbert Ayres, and its sponsor, 
Dean Holiman, the Class of '36 is destined to become a group of which Tay- 
lor may well be proud.

The Special Class 



There is one class on Taylor's campus which does not receive much 
in the way of recognition when it comes to interclass contests and games. 
This class has been termed the "fifth wheel," but it is often the "fifth 
wheel" that saves the day. While it is quite true that the class is an as- 
sembled piece of work and that a great many jokes have been circulated 
about this group of students, yet they are a .jolly conglomeration about 
whom it has been truly said, "They are with us always." Another thing 
to remember about a Special is that a Frosh is generally a Soph next, and 
a Junior usually a Senior, yet no one ever knows just what a Special will 
be next. 

Since this class is made up of those not following the regular courses 
of study, those not having enough credits to become Freshmen, and visitors, 
it is termed the Special Class. Its members are interested largely in music, 
art, and literature. These pursuits have led them into channels outside 
the regular classes, but no matter where their interest lies nor what their 
highest ambition is, they always find shelter in the "Special" section. 

In past years the Special Class has organized, selected class colors and 
an emblem and displayed as much class enthusiasm as any of the other 
classes. On several occasions they have published a class contest edition of 
the Echo and in these and many other ways they have made the class very 
influential on the campus. 

The class is small, and for this reason did not organize during the cur- 
rent year as has been the custom in the past. Many of its members have 
been accepted by the other classes as honorary members and thus they are 
enabled to receive the benefits of the class life and activities which mean so 
much to the college student. However, in spite of the present state of 
affairs, the Special Class cannot be counted out, for it is a tradition of long 
standing that the Special Class is always with us, and if in a few more 
years its members become more plentiful, you may rest assured that it will 
again organize and become once more an influential factor on the campus.

Philos Resolve To Present 
More Literary Programs 



It is quite generally agreed that an in- 
terval of time filled with many events passes 
rapidly, but when looked back upon as history 
it seems to have gone slowly. The past year 
of Philalethean activities is no exception to 
this rule. 

The Society Days this year were slightly 
altered from former ones. In keeping with 
the "New Deal," instead of putting on a Philo 
Pep chapel, the regular chapel hour was ob- 
served in true Society Day custom. Pen- 
nants, streamers, and signs a-la-Burma 
Shave style left no doubt in any one's mind 
that the blue and white was king for a day. 
The initial program of the Philaletheans, 
"The Japanese Nightingale" climaxed the 
day and everyone retired to gain a few winks 
before the fray of Rush Day commenced. 

When the smoke of Rush Day had clear- 
ed away the Philos found thirty-four of the 
sixty-one new students had chosen to wear the blue and white as their 
society colors. Hallowe'en proved to be the date when these were initiated 
by the annual Philo hay ride. This year Matthews was the destination 
where the Philo Carnival was attended. The new members completed their 
initiation when they made their debut in a program depicting the events of 
a day in Mother Goose's school-room. The Thalonian and Philalethean Lit- 
erary Societies combined their efforts and gave the school a real treat when 
they presented Professor Charles Hansen, the blind organist, in a recital on 
February seventeenth. A second treat equally as great was offered by the 
Philos when Barton Rees Pogue was presented in a recital of his poetry, 
assisted by the Philo Men's trio. In looking back over these events we can 
see why the time slipped by so rapidly and the year has gone before we 
realized it. 

The sports events do not appear so cheerful to the Philos 
but in their defeat the Philos had a good opportunity to show 
that one can be a good loser as well as a good winner. The 
Philo men lost three consecutive basketball games to the Thalo 
men. The women won the first game of their series but lost 
the next three, thus surrendering the series. At present Spring 
training for track is opening and every one is awaiting the 
results of Field Day, in the meantime the days are rapidly 
slipping by and soon we will be looking back upon the present 
as a history of pleasant events we should like to re-experience. 

Both societies seem to have realized that not enough at- 
tention has been given to literary programs, and this year they 
have made real efforts to right this wrong.

Thalos Plan To Draft 
New Constitution 



The "Thalonian Spirit" has carried the 
wearers of the orange and black through 
1932-1933 successfully. Motivated by an un- 
usual rush clay the Thalos have held high the 
standards of programs, athletics, and literary 
contests. A pageant of "Annus Thalonis" 
was the initial program. This was followed 
by a new student program which displayed 
unusual originality and talent. The tradi- 
tional masquerade party with its witches 
and pumpkin pie was enjoyed by the society. 

The Christmas pageant, "The Holy Grail," 
was presented again at Christmas, and the 
beauty, excellence, and dignity of the pageant 
was grippingly impressionistic. This 
pageant has become so popular that its pro- 
duction is now an annual event. This year 
interest was so keen that many churches in 
neighboring towns requested that it be pre- 
sented for them. These requests were granted 

whenever possible, and in every case an 

members of the cast. 



arisen 




enthusiastic reception awaited the 



The Philos with the Thalos presented in recital, Professor Hansen, the 
blind organist of Indianapolis, who loves and is loved in return by students 
of Taylor University. 

The athletic contests were enjoyed this year, and a fine spirit of 
sportmanship was displayed. It was the good fortune of the Thalos to cap- 
ture both the men's and women's trophies in basketball. But the Thalonian 
Literary Society is not an athletic association, as was demonstrated by the 
fine literary programs which it offered throughout the year. In the Spring 
term the annual literary contest will be held, and each year there is nearly 
as much interest and rivalry between the two societies in this as there is in 
athletics. It appears at this time that the events are pretty evenly divided, 

and it is not safe to venture a prophecy as to which society 

will take the honors. 

HHHwgH3§£fKl| A great deal of progress has been made by both societies 

| this year. There has been a friendly feeling which was dis- 
played on Rush Day, on the basketball court, and on the base- 
ball field. Perhaps one of the greatest accomplishments of the 
year was the appointment of a committee to draft a constitu- 
tion. Certain other reform measures were adopted, such as 
having the officers serve throughout the entire year, and the 
adoption of a resolution that the Soceity should give a least 
three literary programs each term. Thus it appears that the 
Literary Societies at Taylor are about to taken on new life 
and once more assume the place of prominence which they for- 
merly filled on the campus.

Eulogonians Produce 

Many Instructive 

Programs 



Founded for the purpose of fos- 
tering active participation in pub- 
lic speaking, thereby developing 
poise, confidence, and broadness of 
mind, the Eulogonian Debating 
Club has proved itself a valuable 
factor in securing a liberal 
education. 

Acting in conjunction with the 
fellow society, the Eureka Debat- 
ing Club, the Eulongonian Club 
sponsored an all-school frolic at 
the first of the year, uniting the 
student body in a solid band of 
friendship. Twice during the year 
the two clubs clashed in the strug- 
gle for the inter-club banner. 

For an hour each Saturday night 
the Club members embarrass them- 
selves in extemporaneous speeches, 
put the Club to sleep with stirring 
debates, or lose themselves in par- 
liamentary drill. 

During the current year the Club 
has experienced some difficulty in 
convincing its members that world 
problems can not be solved without 
their earnest attention. In fair- 
ness to our fellow club we record 
the lamentable fact that the fall 
debate was lost, solely because the 
judges could not be convinced of 
the necessity for the international 
cancellation of war debts. Time 
onlv can show their mistake. 



Professor Nystrom Selected As Club Sponsor 
By The Strong-Hearted Maidens 

Many of the "Strong Hearted Maidens" graduated last June leaving only eighteen 
members to start off this year's activities. As is the custom of the club an informal 
out-of-doors reception was given early in the Fall term in honor of the new girls. When 
the day came for them to make their choice of clubs, sixteen of them decided in favor 
of the Soangetahas. 

It was also necessary to select a new club sponsor at the beginning of the year. 
Professor Greer, who had acted in that capacity for the last three years, did not return. 
The Soangetahas felt themselves very fortunate when Professor Nystrom accepted the 
position. The privilege of honorary membership was extended to Mrs. Nystrom as she 
has always been interested in debating. 

The Soangetahas believe in a well-balanced program of activities. In view of this 
fact, various social affairs, distinct from debates and parliamentary procedure, were 
engaged in throughout the year. Thus, the social event following the reception for 
the new girls was a Christmas party, which was a source of much pleasure and amuse- 
ment to those who attended this function. Then, of course, in the Spring, the joint, 
formal banquet with their sister club, the Mnankas, will long be remembered by every 
Soangetaha. Everyone present expressed himself as well pleased with the delightful 
banqut which was served in Hartford City. 

Though the annual debate between the Soangetaha and Mnanka Debating Clubs 
was abandoned for this year. The deviation from customary practice will not be a per- 
manent feature, and as we view the activities of the past year we feel that the club has 
made much progress and materially strengthened its position among the permanent 
organizations of Taylor's Campus. 



Page Forty-two 



Mnankas Enjoy 
Year Of Progress 



The Mnanka Debating Club was 
organized October 7, 1921, in the 
parlors of the Swallow Roibin 
Dormitory. 

This year was started with a for- 
mal tea given for the new girls, 
in the parlors of the Campbell- 
Magee Dormitory. Following this, 
a week later, the new girls were 
taken into full membership of the 
Mnankas by Dr. Ayres, the club 
sponsor. 

The Banner, "Weaver of Know- 
ledge," has been lifted high by the 
club's accomplishments as well as 
in curricular activities. 

During the club hours on Satur- 
day evenings, timid Mnankas have 
forgotten that scared, stiff sensa- 
tion and stepped out into the pres- 
ence of sister Mnankas to make 
names for themselves in the line of 
public appearance. The ability to 
think fast and act with grace and 
ease in public has been developed 
this year. The club hours are spent 
in three different types of train- 
ing: debating, parliamentary drill, 
and extemporaneous speech. 

There has been a good wholesome 
rivalry existing between the two 
clubs, the Mnankas and the Soan- 
getahas. They agreed to join 
forces in their annual Spring 
Banquet. 




Eurekans Fill Many Positions Of Honor 

The Eureka Debating Club comes to the close of its thirtieth year as a part of Tay- 
lor University. It was in 1903 that a few men organized this club and choose for a 
motto, "Mind, the Power of Man." During these many years this motto has been in- 
stilled into the mind and heart of each Eurekan. What has been the result ? Men have 
come into the club inexperienced in the art of speech. Many of the same men have gone 
forth after a few years, proficient in parliamentary law, experienced in the art of argu- 
mentation, marked by their ability on the platform, and all in all more learned in the 
control and use of the mind. 

This has been an exceptional year. The Club furnished eight of the nine men on 
the Intercollegiate Debating Squad. Shields and Boyd, Editor and Business Manager 
of the Gem, are both members of the Eurekans. Bade is the assistant in the Biological 
Department. Thomas, Schilling and Ayres are class presidents, Senior, Junior, and 
Freshmen respectively. Boughton is Chairman of the Student Council. Wesche and 
Cates are ditor and Managing Editor of the Echo. 

Through the fine work of Messrs. Schilling, Ayres, and Bishop, the Eureka Debat- 
ing Club defeated the Eulogonians in the Winter term Inter-Club Debate, and regained 
the coveted victory banner. Throughout this year the club has stressed the programs 
of the weekly meetings. The three presidents, Bade, Gates, and Schilling, have had the 
fine cooperation of the Chairman of the Board of Censors. Many new ideas have been 
used and each man has had the opportunity and privilege of participating in these 
programs.

Le Circle Francais 



To those who do not know 
French, the name "Le Circle Fran- 
cais'" will have no significance. It 
is the name given to the French 
Cluib. Since the original organi- 
zation of this club, it has been re- 
organized every fall term under 
the direction of Miss Gibson. It 
is made up of present and former 
French students. To enter the 
club one much have had at least 
two terms of the French language. 
The purpose of the club is to bring 
to the student a better understand- 
ing of French and to give him 
practice in speaking the language. 

At each meeting of the French 
Club, a very interesting program 
is given. Sometimes a talk on 
French art or literature, or one on 
the people of France may be given. 
Stories are read in French to make 
the student learn to understand 
French as it is read to him. Games 
are usually played in the meet- 
ings. These are a great help to all 
who participate, as they aid in de- 
veloping and broadening the 
vocabulary. 

In the dining hall a Frnech table 
is maintained at different times 
for the purpose of learning to use 
more fluently the French language. 



History Club Presents Interesting Chapel Programs 

The History Club is a popular organization at Taylor. Its bi-monthly meetings are 
a source of enlightening and interesting knowledge gleaned from the fields of past and 
current history. Its mission to the students is to keep them awake to and informed 
on events of vital interest and consequences in a fast and changing world. 

The History Club has frequently presented chapel programs in which much desir- 
able information and entertainment has been disseminated to those who availed them- 
selves of the privilege. One of these programs provided interesting reviews of three 
of the most prominent recent books. These books were then donated to the Library, 
where many students have taken advantage of the opportunity to read them. Though 
a new organization it is fast becoming an established institution at Taylor under the 
supervision of the head of the History Department, Dr. A. L. Bramlett. The activities 
of the past year have ibeen directed by Owen Shields, president, and an able board of 
censors. They have supplied programs rich and varied in content, and not without 
spicy entertainment. 

The History Club has a future, and, likewise, its members have a future. From its 
ranks may rise prominent statesmen of a future day, and outstanding citizens of a new 
age. No small part of the success of its members may be attributed to the training 
which they receive in presenting the various chapel and club programs in which nearly 
every member is enabled to participate. This valuable training in appearing before an 
audience makes the History Club one of the most beneficial organizations on the campus, 
and undoubtedly is the cause of much of its popularity with the students.

Prayer Band Offers 

Encouragement 

And Help 



Prayer Band holds a glorious 
heritage in the traditions of Tay- 
lor University, for within this 
group many students have had 
visions of service, brotherhood, and 
the love of the Master. It might 
well be called the Vision Band, for 
in it God is revealed and lives are 
transformed as a result. Bishop 
William Taylor saw God through 
prayer and left all to follow Him 
around the world. Dr. J. Frank 
(Nottingham saw God through pray- 
er and lost his life to find it in the 
heart of the Philippines. Mrs. 
Susan Talbott Wengatz and John 
Wengatz saw God through prayer 
and gave their all that their Afri- 
can brothers might have life. Dr. 
Brown saw God and carried the 
Torch to China. Just so, scores of 
students have had visions of God in 
Prayer Band, and are today work- 
ing at home and in the ends of the 
earth to win the world to Christ. 
Thus, we see the world-wide mis- 
sion of this prayer group. 

Some blessed experiences have 
come to the group who hr.ve at- 
tended Prayer Band this year, and 
each one has gone from the prayer 
hour with his heart encouraged. 




Many Well Known Missionaries 
Visit Campus During Past Year 

"To serve the present age" — the challange to youth which so many Taylor students 
have accepted. It is in answer to the call of the foreign field that many have sought 
to serve in other lands, and it is those who aspire to foreign service that form the Stu- 
dent Volunteer Band, and the nucleus of Taylor's Missionary Society. 

The Student Volunteer organization is nation-wide, and the Taylor group is active 
in the Indiana Branch. Out of the general interest of the student body in the work of 
missions, there has grown around this group the Taylor Missionary Society, dedicated to 
the furthering of world fellowship and Kingdom building. The meetings of the Volun- 
teers are bi-weekly, and a Missionary Rally Day is held once each term. 

The heritage of the society is rich, with the life of that great missionary, Bishop 
William Taylor, for whom the school is named, as the characterization of its spirit. It 
is further enriched by having scores of missionaries in fields all over the world. This 
year the society and the student body have been especially blessed iby having Dr. E. 
Stanley Jones, Dr. John F. Cottingham, and Dr. Willis R. Hotchkiss, as well as other 
inspiring speakers on the campus; and also by the fact that Miss Margaret Habermann, 
missionary to India, and Dr. John C. Wengatz, missionary to Africa, have made Taylor 
their headquarters while on furlough. 

The world of the present student body has been enlarged this year, both by friends 
who have gone to foreign lands — Misses Josephine and Marguerite Deyo, to Ancon, 
Panama, and Rev. and Mrs. Willard McLaughlin, with their daughter, Kathleen, to Ban- 
galore, S. India — and by the presence in the student body of two students from India, 
as well as the sons and daughters of several missionaries.

Girls' Gospel Team 

Is Organized During 

Past Year 



Early in the school year the 
members of the Girls' Gospel Team 
were banded together under the 
direction of the Dean of Women 
for mutual helpfulness, and to as- 
sist as opportunity afforded in Gos- 
pel services on the Campus and in 
outside communities. Weekly meet- 
ings for prayer and study have en- 
abled them to carry out the pur- 
pose expressed in their motto: 
"Thy servants are ready to do 
whatsoever my Lord, the King, 
shall appoint." The services which 
they have conducted have been 
fruitful as well as affording a 
splendid training in leadership for 
those who will soon be out in a 
larger field of service. The Girls' 
Quartet as an integral part of the 
organization has added the mes- 
sage in song to that of the testi- 
mony of the group. 

From a very modest beginning 
this organization has grown until 
it now fills an important need in 
the lives of many girls on Taylor's 
Campus, and we sincerely believe 
that greater things are in store 
for us as we become more firmly 
entrenched in the hearts of the 
students and the activities of the 
campus. 



Men's Ministerial Association Adopts 
New Motto This Year 

The Men's Ministerial Association of Taylor University is an active organization 
composed of young men who are expecting to enter the ministry. This organization 
was originally made up of young men and women, but later it was divided into the 
present Women Evangels and Men's Ministerial Association. 

The purpose of the Men's Ministerial Association is to give prospective ministers 
a chance for practical experience at preaching. The programs usually contain prac- 
tice preaching, lectures on ministerial etiquette, group discussions on ministerial prob- 
lems, question and answer groups led by the sponsor, and sometimes the entire time 
is taken up with prayer and singing. Men who are planning to enter the ministry find 
this one of the most helpful organizations on the campiis, for in these meetings the 
problems of the young minister are given consideration, and many helpful suggestions 
may be gleaned from the round table discussions often engaged in by the members. 

The motto of this group is: "That Others Might Know Him." It was inaugurated 
in the Spring term of 1933, and has been the means of furnishing many prospective 
young ministers with inspiration and encouragement at the time when it was needed 
the most. 

The sponsor, who aids in solving perplexing questions, and acts as a steadying and 
guiding hand, is Dr. A. Lincoln Shute, the head of the Bible Department of Taylor Uni- 
versity. His vast knowledge and wide experiences make him especially valuable in this 
work. Those who are expecting to become ministers feel that this organization fills a 
vital need in their lives, and that its work is almost indispensible in preparing them to 
become effective ministers of the kingdom.

School Of Music 

Continues To 

Attract Large 

Number Of 

Students 



The School of Music, under the 
efficient direction of Professor 
Theodora Bothwell, continues to 
hold its position as one of the 
strongest schools of the University. 
Although the personnel is slightly 
diminished in number, the quality 
and high standing remains the 
same. For many years Taylor 
University has been famed for its 
exceptionally good Music School, 
and it continues to attract talented 
students from all parts of the 
country. 

The faculty is composed of the 
following artists and instructors: 
Theodora Bothwell, Mus. M., Di- 
rector, Piano and Organ; George 
Fenstermacher, M. A., Violin and 
Theory; Erwin Steucke, Mus. B., 
Voice and Public School Music; 
Sadie Louise Miller, children's 
work in piano; and F. H. Reiter, 
Band. The school is equipped with 
many pleasant piano practice 
rooms, a three manual Tellers-Kent 
organ, a two manual Estey organ 
and a pedal piano. 



EHtaHH 




The school holds weekly practice recitals besides the numerous recitals by individ- 
ual students. Among its other features are: the Orchestra, directed by Professor Fens- 
termacher; the Choral Society and Men's Glee Club, with Professor Steucke as director; 
and the Band, conducted by Mr. Reiter. 

All of these organizations contribute greatly to the musical life of the University 
and the students have learned to expect programs of exceptional quality from each of 
them. 

It has been the custom of the School of Music to offer a number of musical events of 
the highest quality each year. Two years ago the School sponsored a program given 
by the Fisk Jubilee Singers which was a rare privilege, and nearly every student took 
advantage of it. Last year the School presented the Welsh singers and once more the 
students received a real musical treat. This year the School of Music was unable to 
bring an outstanding feature becouse of the unusual financial conditions which have 
prevailed throughout the year. As a result every effort has been made to offset this 
deficiency by providing the best programs possible with its own talent. The large crowds 
in attendance at the various recitals seem to prove that the efforts have not been wholly 
in vain. 

Each year the Music School has sponsored a unique contest in which both Ladies' 
and Men's Vocal Quartets have competed. Prizes were offered the winning quartets. 
Each year there was a great deal of competition and performances of the highest order 
were always assured. These contests have become very popular with the students as 
well as with the people of surrounding neighborhoods, and large crowds are always 
present at these events.

Men's Glee Club 
Buys New Music 



The Men's Glee Club under the 
direction of Professor Erwin 
Steucke has been a course of in- 
valuable study in group singing. 
Practices have been scheduled reg- 
ularly each week. The enrollment 
has been constant throughout the 
year. Due to the large number of 
organ and piano recitals by stu- 
dents of the School of Music it has 
been impossible for the Club to 
give a public recital as it did last 
year. The work has therefore been 
confined to the instruction rooms 
where excellent harmony has been 
produced on works by such com- 
posers as Wagner, Schubert, Gou- 
nod, and Sullivan. English, Irish 
and American folk songs have oc- 
cupied much time, also. 

Last year the Men's Glee Club 
went to sing at several out-of-town 
gatherings. It also took part in 
the Washington's Birthday pro- 
gram, and gave an exceptionally 
good public recital which showed 
the real talent of its members. 

It is expected that under the 
leadership of Prof. Steucke the 
Glee Club may again attain music 
fame in this section of the country- 
New music has recently been pur- 
chased in order to meet the needs 
of the club. The members are very 
desirous of making it a real asset 
to the school. 



Plans Are Made For A Bigger Girl's Glee Club 

The Girl's Glee Club has been under the supervision and direction of Professor 
Steucke this year. The club was active during the first part of the year, but because 
of the small number able to participate in the weekly practices, the members thought 
it best to disband for the remainder of the year. Many of the members joined the 
Choral Society, and that organization has been greatly strengthened as a result. 

The Girls' Glee Club is an organization of long standing on the campus. In past 
years the Club has gone to sing at several out-of-town functions and has from time to 
time given public recitals, and operettas in which a great wealth of well developed 
talent was displayed. It has always been the practice to include in their programs the 
best of both sacred and secular numbers, and thus they have been able to present varied 
and well rounded programs which never failed to meet with approval. 

The disbanding of the club this year does not mean that it has been permanently 
abolished. Because of the temporarily reduced enrollment almost every organization 
lias been taxed to the limit to carry on its programs successfully. Both the students 
and the director are anxious to create interest among the new students in order that a 
large number will be available to form a club next year. Plans are now being made 
to insure the efficient functioning of the club in the future on a much larger scale than 
ever before. There is a real need for a Girls' Glee Club on the Campus, and it is felt 
that with an increase in the student body the club can very easily be reorganized.

Band Appears In 
Public Concerts 



The Band of this year was organ- 
ized during the Fall term under 
the direction of Mr. Fred Reiter. 
Having studied the Art of Direct- 
ing under Professor Joseph Eliot, 
of Cincinnati, under Professor 
Matty of the University of Michi- 
gan, and in the Metropolitan School 
of Music at Indianapolis, he has 
been able to produce a very excel- 
lent band. He has also promoted a 
spirit of enthusiasm and a genuine 
love for the work itself, which are 
assets to any worthy organization. 

During the Winter Term the 
Band furnished the music for the 
banquet which crowned the pro- 
gram of the Grant County Corn 
Show, held in the Maytag Gymna- 
sium. The Annual Concert of the 
Band which was given during the 
Commencement season demonstrat- 
ed exquisite taste in selection and 
excellence in performance. The 
programs given by the Band have 
been varied in content and have 
consisted in snappy marches, over- 
tures, peppy school songs, and 
often difficult classical numbers 
which have been rendered in a 
truly descriptive manner that has 
won the applause and commenda- 
tion of the student body as well as 
off-campus friends. 

The organization itself and the 
Music Department wish to extend 
the greatest appreciation to Mr. 
Reiter for his gracious service. 




Plans Are Made For A Larger Orchestra 

Professor Fenstermacher and the University Orchestra have again lived up to the" 
high standard of work set in previous years, and the orchestra has accomplished much 
this past year. Although we had to bid farewell to some of our best and most loyal 
members, sufficient new talent has been recruited to fill their places. The orchestra 
had charge of the entire chapel program on several occasions and amply lived up to its 
reputation with the programs which it rendered. The enthusiastic applause of the' 
students showed that the beauty and quality of this work was greatly appreciated by 
them. Although the orchestra has not made as many public appearances this year 
as last, the quality of work produced has been high. Professor Fenstermacher is to be 
highly commended for the type of work he has done with non-profession players. 

Besides the regular University orchestra, a violin octette has also been organized 
as well as a smaller sixnpiece orchestra. The latter assisted in the conference program 
at Huntington, Indiana, where much satisfaction was expressed with the type and qual- 
ity of the programs which were given at nearly every session of the conference. 

The University Orchestra has long been an important factor in the life of the music 
school, largely because it has provided an opportunity for all instrumentalists of at 
least average ability to enjoy ensemble playing and to become acquainted with some 
of the standard orchestral compositions, and it has been greatly appreciated by both the 
school of music and the student body. An increase in membership as well as in the 
number of public appearances has been urged, and plans are being laid for a bigger and 
better orchestra.

Choral Society 
Appears In The 
Production Of Well 
Known Cantata 



Talent, selected and refined by 
good training, always produces 
something worth while. Such is 
the case of the Choral Society 
which is under the direction of a 
new leader, Professor Steucke. 
This group has worked diligently 
all year in studying and mastering 
the world's great choral literature, 
and at certain seasons of the year 
it has made public appearances in 
which it gave these beautiful mas- 
terpieces. There is no doubt that 
the success of the Society is due to 
the fine leadership of Professor 
Steucke and to Miss Bothwell who 
accompanied at the organ. 

Throughout the year the group 
sang in Chapel services and at 
Sunday Vespers. The first out- 
standing appearance was in the 
production of "Noel," by Henry 
Wessel, at the Christmas season. 
The Easter time was commemorated 
by the beautiful cantata, "Olivet 
to Calvary," by J. H. Maunder. 
Needless to say, this offering thrill- 
ed the audience with its clear 
message of the reality and meaning 
of Easter Day. The Choral Society, 
along with the orchestra and band, 
furnished the music at the Com- 
mencement season. The crowning 
event of the Chorus was its ap- 
pearance on Baccalaureate Sunday. 



Home Economics Department 
Engages In Many Activities 

With the ushering in of industrial changes, household electrical equipment, and 
many new types of recreation, a great change has come about in the modern American 
home. Household duties have been so lightened that the present day housewife has 
more leisure time. Consequently she often becomes so enthusiastic over her social 
acitvities that the sadly neglected home becomes a mere shelter having no vital home 
spirit, and is in no sense self-sufficient. 

The problem for us today is to adjust our homes and homelife to the changes in 
civilization rather than long for "the good old days" which will never return. It is the 
privilege of every girl as she goes into the world to prove that the home can be a fore- 
taste of heaven, a place where discord and strife, anxiety and dissatisfaction, cannot 
enter; a place where joy and peace abide and where love reigns supreme. 

Perhaps some do not understand what constitutes a good home and how they may 
attain it. It is to prepare our girls for home efficiency that our Home Economics 
Department exists. During the current year this department has been very active. 
On one occasion they were guests on an inspection tour of a number of stores in Marion 
after which a delightful banquet was served. 

Miss Dare is the head of this Department at Taylor University. Her capability and 
enthusiasm make her most efficient for the position. Each year more and more girls 
are coming to realize this with the result that interest in this department has been 
constantly incrasing. Several new courses have been added to the curriculum with the 
result that a full major in Home Economics is now possible.

Convention To Be 

Held Here Next 

Year 




When the week draws to a close 

we cast aside the thought of 

studies and classes, then we gather 

in the Friday evening Holiness 

League meetings. There we forget, 

as it were, the things of earth and 

enjoy the blessings which God 

sends. 

Throughout the year the services 

under the leadership of our presi- 
dents, Stanley Boughton, Margaret 

Emmert, and Nathan Tyler, have 

been times of blessed fellowship 

and communion with the Holy 

Spirit. The programs of the year 

have been interestingly varied with 

both local and outside talent. 

These weekly meetings have 

brought forth ringing testimonies 

from those who have found new 

blessings and greater experiences 
. in Christian living. An unusual 

spirit has pervaded nearly every 

meeting and those present have 

been moved to enter heartily into 

every phase of the program 

whether it be singing hymns, offer- 
ing prayers, or listening to the 

inspiring words of some messenger 

of God. Thus the members feel 

that they have indeed been blessed 

by the presence of God in their 

weekly meetings, and they are ex- 
tremely anxious that this spirit 

should be prevalent on the campus, 

and that the Holiness League 

might continue to give spiritual blessings and inspiration to all who seek it. A lock 
may be a good lock and quite capable of performing its function, but it is of very 
little value unless we have the key to fit it. In the same way one may have a true 
Christian experience and yet be unable to help those about him to find Christ. The 
Holiness League provides an opportunity for every student to show by his presence 
that he is interested in the things of the Kingdom, by his testimony that he knows the 
Lord, and by his prayers that he is anxious to win souls. The Holiness League has been 
a nucleus of inspiration and spmtual power for the student body. May it continue 
throughout the coming years to live up to its motto: "Holiness Unto the Lord." 

For the last four years the Holiness League has been recognized as the local 
chapter of the Young People's Gospel League, a national organization for the spread of 
Scriptural Holiness among young people. Although as an organization the Holiness 
League has not functioned this year as an active chapter, yet many of the members are 
vitally interested in the national organization. A group of them attended the National 
Convention held last November at Asbury College. One of this number, Percival 
Wesche, was elected as second vice-president of the Y. P. G.L. The Taylor student body 
is now looking forward with anticipation to the Y. P. G. L. Convention to be held here 
next fall. The true worth of Holiness League may be gleaned from the words of many 
Taylor graduates who have returned from time to time and testified to the abiding 
influence that it has had in their lives.

Juniors Win The Class Echo Contest 

The Echo this year completed its twentieth year of publication in the form of a 
weekly paper. Though difficulties have presented themselves, throughout the year the 
Echo has been able to live up to its policy of presenting the news to the students, fac- 
ulty, and friends of Taylor in such a way as to represent the school as it really is. The 
staff has tried to make every edition of interest to its readers and always to maintain 
the journalistic standard of other years. 

A number of changes have been made in the Echo staff during the year, and many 
of these were not recognized in the list above due to the fact that the engraving was 
done early in the year. Harry Griffiths resigned his position at Literary Editor, and 
his place was taken by Lucile Jones, who is also a reporter on the staff. John Wiske- 
nian became Alumni Editor in place of Donnis Horine, when she did not return to school 
at the close of the Winter term. In addition to these changes Irene Tennant and 
De Witt Fowler were added to the staff as reporters to fill vacancies. 

During the year the Echo, like many other organizations, faced a severe financial 
problem. Because of this the staff was forced to abandon the original plan of publi- 
cation and early in the Winter term they started publishing bi-weekly. By this plan 
and by constant economy the staff was able to complete the year and leave a little 
money in the treasury. 

The students will never forget some of the features of the year. Few will forget 
the April Fool Edition. That was one paper which fooled us all, especially the splendid 
articles on the inside pages. The entire school was interested in the class contest 
papers. This year the contest was won by the Junior Class, which had a rating of 775 
points. This was twenty points higher than the winning paper last year. The score for 
all of the papers was high, Seniors, 765, Sophomores, 745, and the Freshmen, 730.

For Those Who Care To Know 

This Gem is much different from any previous edition. It has been the constant 
aim and desire of the staff to produce a book that would portray successfully the life 
and activities of the campus. We have tried whenever possible to make it interesting 
and attractive, but we have found it necessary to give up many of our plans because of 
the expenses which they involved. 

Perhaps some of you will feel that you are receiving less for your money this year 
than formerly because of the reduction of the nuinber of pages. It is true that the book 
is smaller, but we have, for economical reasons, tried to place more on a page and thus 
utilize every bit of the space. We believe that you will find that nothing vital has been 
omitted or neglected. 

We feel that the photography this year is exceptionally good, and we should like 
to take this opporunity of expressing our appreciation to Mr. Otis Forkner, our Gem 
Photographer, for the splendid work and cooperation received from him. We should 
also like to acknowledge our indebtedness to the Ft. Wayne Engraving Co. and the 
laylor University Press for their fine service and cooperation. 

We believe the snapshot section is one of the most important of the entire book, 
and therefore we have tried to make it as good as possible. This section has actually 
been increased this year, and we sincerely hope that you will find it very interesting 
and suggestive of many happy events. 

No mention is made here of indebtedness to members of the staff because we realize 
that this book is a product of the united labor and cooperation of the entire staff, and 
that it would not have been possible, in its present form, without the whole-hearted 
support and cooperation of every member of the staff. We have constructed the book 
as we thought best, and now we present it to you trusting that it will meet with your 
approval.

Student Council Is Active 
This Year 

The Student Council is composed this 
year of only four members, due to the fail- 
ure of the Special Class to oi-ganize. There 
is one representative from each class with 
the Senior member acting as president and 
the Junior mamlber serving as secretary. 

The Council has endeavored to create a 
spirit of unity and cooperation between the 
students and faculty, and at all times to 
secure a mutual understanding between 
them upon matters falling within its jur- 
isdiction. The council, together with the 
help of the Junior rules committee, a special 
inter-society council, and the cooperation of 
the two literary societies instituted some 
new regulations that provided a very 
wholesome atmosphere during pre-rush day 
activities. It is believed that student 
opinion and cooperation gave new power to 
the council in this respect, which is a sign 
of progress for this rising organization. 

Throughout the year the council has pro- 
vided entertainment for the weekly dinner 
given Iby our hostess, Miss Dare, and it has 
cooperated with her to make this a pleas- 
ant affair for the students. During the first 
week of school, a new student reception was 
sponsored by the council, also a couple of 
student group meetings were held for the 
purpose of fostering and maintaining our 
good old "Taylor Spirit." 



Debaters Rank High In 
Manchester Tournament 

Taylor has, in the past, produced some 
notable debaters, and each year her teams 
have ranked with the best in this section of 
the state. This year a fine schedule was ar- 
ranged under the supervision of Dr. C. L. 
Nystrom, the new head of the Speech De- 
partment. Mr. Harry Griffiths again took 
charge of coaching the teams and a squad 
of eight men made the journey to North 
Manchester to participate in the annual de- 
bate tournament there. There were thirty- 
eight colleges, with more than eighty teams 
represented at this tournament, and an ac- 
curate record was kept of all the debates. 
On the basis of this record Taylor was 
placed seventh among the thirty-eight 
schools represented. 

The question debated this year was, 
"Resolved: That at least fifty per cent of 
the revenue for state and local purposes 
should be derived from sources other than 
that of tangible property." The squad was 
organized into two affirmative teams and 
one negative. The teams were well bal- 
anced and proved to be exceptionally good 
in their delivery. 

Griffiths, Smith, Boughton, and Thomas 
will be lost through graduation this year. 
Their absence will be felt keenly next year, 
but many new recruits are expected to be 
gathered from the incoming Freshman 
Class, and the prospects seem excellent for 
another strong team next year.

Recreation at Taylor 

This has been one of the best years in the history of athletics at Taylor 
University. The principle objective has been to secure, for every student, 
the benefits implied in the original meaning of the word, re-creation. 

Regardless of the contemporary criticism of athletic competition 
games will remain with us. Their popularity with, prevalence among, and 
service to man are evidences of that. Nevertheless, there is a constant 
need to direct them toward legitimate educational goals if their social con- 
tribution is to be realized. 

In the Greek world in the clays of the Olympia the records show that 
those states which were doing something to advance intellectually were 
winning at Olympia and that as soon as they became stagnant or turned 
their intellectual life to the interests of military despotism they won no 
more. 

The Greeks held that gymnastic work was for health and athletics for 
competition, the first being personal and selfish, the second social and 
moral. Whenever the mass of the people give enthusiastic support to well 
directed athletics they can hardly fail to have the following results : They 
make for democracy and social equality; snobbery will not win the race. 
Athletics make for fairness and honesty; a cheater in a game is soon an 
outcast. Athletics make for self-control and patience; "He that controlleth 
himself is greater than he that taketh a city." Athletics make for temper- 
ance; "And every man that striveth in the game is temperate in all 
things." Athletics make for cooperation ; there never was greater need for 
team work in the world than at the present time. 

Athletics at Taylor stand for these things, and it is with these attain- 
ments in mind that all the students are given an opportunity to participate 
in one or more sports. 

Taylor is well equipped to carry on this work in the new 
Maytag Gymnasium, on the cinder track, on the ball diamond, 
and" on the nine tennis courts. The entire program and policies 
are controlled by the newly organized "T" Club under the 
leadership 'of the director of athletics. 

As you peruse these next few pages keep in mind the 
above attainments as well as the marks made, remembering all 
the while that, "when the One Great Scorer comes to mark 
against your name, He writes, not that you won or lost, but 
how you played the game."

Our Director of Athletics 

Taylor University was extremely fortunate when A. H. "Hersh" Corn- 
well was secured to direct Taylor's athletic policies in the capacity of ath- 
letic director. Now, after two years of constant progress under his efficient 
direction, the faculty and student body are at last beginning to realize his 
true worth. 

Coach Cornwell did not come to Taylor unprepared for his task. He 
had had actual experience in nearly all phases of sport. During his college 
days at Southwestern College, Kansas, he was an outstanding, all-around 
athlete. He made the varsity team in four sports. For three years he was 
a lineman on the football squad. He played guard on the basketball team 
for two years, and he was also a member of the baseball and track teams 
for one year each. In addition, "Hersh" has completed considerable work 
in the department of Physical Education at the University of Wisconsin. 
Since coming to Taylor "Hersh" has put new life into Taylor sports. 
Largely through his efforts the Taylor "T" Club was organized, with its 
goal of making Taylor athletics better than ever before. During his first 
term here a new system of playing society tennis matches was introduced. 
It has been well received and is working efficiently at the present time. The 
athletes themselves are taking a new hold, and coming out to practice in 
increasingly large numbers. Not the least tribute to Coach Cornwell's 
industry and ability is the manner in which he has improved equipment. 
An outstanding improvement made during his first year was the finish- 
ing of one dressing room. The concrete floor was poured by student vol- 
unteer labor. At the same time the walls of the swimming 
pool were poured, and a check-room was also provided. 

Last year the County High School Invitational Basketball 
tourney was held at Taylor. The management of the tourna- 
ment was left entirely in Cornwell's hands. The county offi- 
cials were well pleased with the results of his efforts. 

Under Coach Cornwell's leadership, Taylor is looking for- 
ward to a new day in Christian athletics. We know that if we 
follow his coaching we shall become proficient in our chosen 
sports, and if we follow his leadership we shall attain new 
heights of Christian character.

Thalos Overwhelm 
Philos In Series Opener 

Thalos 53, Philos 14 



The Society basketball men's series opened this year with an over- 
whelming Thalo victory. The Thalos pulled a bit of a surprise when they 
started a new man, Redinger, in a guard position. It was soon seen that 
the Thalo manager, Long, had made no mistake. He fitted in well with a 
combination which included Johnson, the star of the final game last year, 
Coldiron, Miller, and Tyler. This team started with the opening whistle 
and was never threatened. 

The Philos made a "dashing" appearance when they came on the floor 
outfitted in new blue suits with a large white "P" and numerals. Their 
starting line-up included Boughton, Griswold, Gates, Weaver, and Persons, 
but the Philo manager, Griswold, substituted freely in search of a combi- 
nation which could stem the Thalo onslaught. As the score shows he 
searched in vain. 

There were no outstanding scoring stars on either team. Five Thalo 
men scored eight points or above while five Philo men shared in the scoring 
of the Blue and White.

Philos Again Bow To 
Powerful Thalo Quintet 

Thalos 35, Philos 20 




The second game of the series was not even comparable to the first 
game. The Philo team was determined to atone as much as possible for the 
score of the previous game. I An indication of how well they succeeded is 
the score at the half which was 11-5 for the Thalos. This doesn't even re- 
semble the 21-7 half score of the first game. 

Each team had one new man in the starting line-up. Griffiths started 
at forward for the blue and white in place of Boughton. For the Thalos, 
Howard played guard for Redinger, who was out of town. As in the game 
before substitutions were made freely for both teams. 

Griswold and Thomas led the scoring for the Philos, making the credit- 
able total of 10 points and 6 points respectively. As before the orange and 
black scoring was well distributed, four men being within two points of 
each other. 

In the last quarter spurt, the Thalos who were rather peeved with 
their showing finally pulled away from their opponents to achieve the 
final score.

The Thalos entered the final game determined to show everyone that 
the first game walk-away was not a freak. They only partially succeeded 
as the score shows. The Philos insisted on making a game of it. 

This game was very similar to the games which preceded it. The only 
marked difference was in the scoring of the Thalo team. Johnson had a hot 
night and ran up 13 points to place him at the head of the season's scorers. 
Redinger returning to the line-up after an absence of one game counted 8 
points in the closing minutes of the game, after the rest of the Thalo reg- 
ulars had left the floor. He got them without much help by brilliant in- 
dividual play. 

Griswold again led the Philo scorers with six points. This placed him 
at the head of Philo scorers and fifth in the college scoring ranks. Griffiths 
played well in this game scoring 3 points as well as playing a fine defensive 
game.

While the Thalo team came through about as expected this year, the 
games did not lack interest. The Philo men showed the effects of hard and 
determined training and carried the fight to the Thalos continually. Es- 
pecially noticeable was the marked improvement of Thomas and Griffiths. 
Thomas, in particular, showed the results of the lonely hours he put in 
practicing. 

The addition of Redinger and Miller to the already strong Thalo line- 
up put the series in a bag. The Thalo team was bigger and more experi- 
enced than the Philos, and this counted heavily in their favor. Miller 
played well during the series which was what was expected of him, so he 
didn't get much credit for it. 

Newcomers to Taylor were saved the disappointment of not seeing the 
Thalo jinx in action when Stuart was forced from the series with a bad 
knee received in an outside encounter. He played less than one half, but 
placed eighth in the college scoring.

Philos Triumph In 
Harcbfought Opener 

Philos 22, Thalos 20 



With the men's basketball series practically conceded as a Thalo vic- 
tory, interest centered this year on the women. For the first time in two 
years the Philo girls were considered as having a fine chance to upset the 
Thalo monopoly on the trophy. Both teams had fine new talent to replace 
the graduated stars, but the Thalos had no one to equal the size and under- 
the-basket ability of Witner. 

Soon after the game started Drake scored for the Philos. They were 
never headed after that first basket. At the half the Philos had what 
seemed a comfortable lead of 13-6. Upon the resumption of the second 
half the Thalo girls seemed to realize they would have to do something to 
save the day. Deich was shifted from guard to center and they started 
out after the flying Philos. How nearly they succeeded in overtaking them 
the Philos know best. It is enough to say that the tying basket was not 
counted, as Gilmore traveled with the ball. 

Gilmore was the offensive star for the Thalos. The Philo scoring was 
better balanced, all forward court players scoring. The guai'ds of both 
teams played well.

Thalos Even Series 
Victors in Overtime 

Philos 19, Thalos 20 




By the time this game rolled around the fans knew the kind of games 
to expect. So no one was terribly surprised when the two teams split the 
results of the first two games and tied at the end of the regular period. In 
the overtime the Thalos got the one point necessary to give them the edge 
on the series. 

In this game the work of those two stellar Thalo guards, L. Coby and 
Herrmann, was the outstanding feature. 

The game was nip and tuck throughout the first half. The score then 
was 11-10 for the Thalos. In the early stages of the second half the Philo 
girls seemed to wilt somewhat. But they made up for it in the final stages 
of the game when they came up with a rush. Miriam Pugh entered the 
game in the closing minute and vindicated the judgment of her coach by 
sinking the tying basket. In the overtime the control of the tip-off by Deich, 
the Thalo center, decided the outcome. 



The Philo scoring in this game was remarkably even, 
separated the totals of their three regular forwards.

Philos Drop Behind 

As Thalos Score 

Close Victory 

Thalos 22, Philos 20 



The Thalo girls appeared for the second game with new orange suits. 
The numerals were black, and a script "Thalo" modeled after the boys' 
uniforms served to identify the society to which they belonged. 

This game was as thrilling as the first one, only now the situations 
were reversed. The Thalos took the lead from the first and held it long 
enough to have the verdict at the final whistle. At the half the score stood 
12-8 in favor of the orange and black. 

The last half turned into a rather free scoring affair. The Thalos got 
most of their baskets from close in while the Philos were exceptionally ac- 
curate from a distance of the foul line. The whistle finally dashed Philo 
hopes when it caught them still trying to keep Gilmore from scoring when- 
ever she did. 

For the Thalos L. Coby and Bennett played fine games as guards, while 
Boyle seemed to find herself somewhat at forward. 

The Philos, Drake and Brothers, handled their scoring, while Jones 
and Kletzing played well as guards.

Thalos Again Top 
Philos To Win Series 

Thalos 21, Philos 15 




What became the final game of the Thalo series was played in the 
afternoon, due to the scheduling of other events. The Thalos entered this 
game handicapped by the loss of two regular guards, Bennett and L. Coby. 

In this game the Thalo girls took the lead from the first and held it 
throughout. At the half the score was 10-8, and they increased this lead 
until the whistle blew to end the series. 

This Thalo victory was largely due to the fine game played by Issy 
Deich. To her usual good floor game she added shooting and thus became 
a high scoring center. She had no monopoly on the heroics, however. 
Kletzing, the Philo guard, held Gilmore to 9 points. This probably caused 
Deich to break out in the aforementioned manner. Tooley added further to 
the embarrassment of Gilmore by continually intercepting passes. She 
played a daring and successful game. 

Herrmann deserves equal credit with Deich for the Thalo victory, 
because of her exceptional game at guard. It was largely due to her ef- 
forts that the Philo total was lower than for any other game of the series. 
The work of the Thalo substitute guards, White and R. Coby, far sur- 
passed the expectations of even the most rabid Thalo fan. 

The new comers presented the fireworks in this series, three Thalo 
regulars and one Philo regular coming in this class.

In Annual Meet 

PHILOS, 82; THALOS, 52 

The Philo Track men com- 
pletely dominated the annual 
track and field meet by taking 
nine of the fifteen first places 
and nine second places. Due to 
the day there was only one out- 
standing' performance and that 
was Campbell's record breaking 
half mile. He ran it in 2:16:6. 

Bud Coldiron was the meets 
high scorer with two firsts and 
two seconds for a total of six- 
teen points. Milt Persons came 
directly behind with fourteen 
points gleaned from one first 
and three seconds. 

The Thalos were handicapped 
by the loss of Long and Stuart 
on account of injuries.

Sophomore Men Are Again 
Victorious In Class Series 

The Sophomore men again came through 
to win the class basketball series without a 
loss. The Junior team finished second, and 
the Seniors and Freshmen finished in the 
order named. The Sophomore team won the 
championship by defeating the Freshmen 
24-17, the Seniors 32-15, and the Juniors 
31-14. 

The surprise game was the Sophomore- 
Freshman set-to. Due to the brilliant play 
of Miller, the Freshman center, his team was 
always close behind. He was particularly 
"hot" on long shots in this game. 

The Junior-Sophomore game was a disappointment 
to the fans. Last year these two teams put on a 
great battle, but the Juniors couldn't keep it inter- 
esting this year. (Stuart was especially good in this 
game, both on offense and defense.) 

The scores of the games having no bearing on the 
championship were : Juniors, 22 ; Seniors, 14 ; Jun- 
iors, 23 ; Frosh, 17 ; Seniors, 21 ; Frosh, 12. 






Junior Women Repeat As Class Champions 

The Junior girls again repeated their victories of last year and 
emerged the women's class basketball champions. They received quite a 
scare in the Freshman game, however, but finally won 29-27. This game 
was a thriller throughout. A strong Junior rally in the last half made 
the victory possible. 

To win the cup the Junior girls also defeated the Seniors 43-6. They 
won the Sophomore game on a forfeit. 

Helen Gilmore and Miriam Pugh were the outstanding workers in the 
forward court for the Juniors. The former again led the college scoring 
with a total of 41 points. "Mim" used her height to good advantage around 
the basket, taking plenty of time on her shots, and making them quite un- 
bothered by the smaller guards. Deich and Brown kept the Junior basket 
guarded in an exceptional way. 

Due to the difficulty the seniors and sophomores had in 
collecting enough girls for a team, the only other game played 
was the Freshman-Sophomore game in which the Freshmen 
won 18-5. 

The outstanding feature of the series was the play of the 
Freshmen girls. They displayed a teamwork which put to 
shame the team play of the upper classes. They had no indi- 
vidual stars, all the forwards being good shots, and the guards 
about even in ability.

New System 
Inaugurated 

Thalos Conquer Philos 

A new system of playing the 
society tennis series was inaugu- 
rated this spring. Under this 
plan boys' and girls' tennis is 
separated so each has his own 
series. In order to give more 
players a chance to compete two 
singlists are picked from each 
society, each of whom is to play 
both the singlists of the oppos- 
ing society. These singlists are 
ineligible to play doubles for 
their society. Thus four men are 
picked from each society and 
they are required to play five 
matches. The girls play under 
the same system, 



MEN'S SERIES 



The surprising feature of the 
men's series was the refusal of the 
Philo players to fold up before a 
reputation. Before the series few 
people would have given the Philos 
an outside chance as the Thalos 
had Spaude, the college champion. 

Tennant nearly ruined the Thalo 
confidence when he succeeded in 
taking a hard fought set from 



Spaude but the veteran rallied in 
time to win the match 6-3, 5-7, 6-2. 

Against Gates, the Philo No. 2 
man, Spaude was unbeatable and 
won handily by a score of 6-4, 6-1. 

Gates then took the court against 
Howard, the Thalo No. 2 man. 
This match, which was close 
throughout, was won by Howard, 
7-5, 6-4. 



WOMEN'S SERIES 

Everyone looked forward to the match between the vet- 
eran Philo, Margaret Wolf, and the rising Thalo star, Helen 
Gilmore. When it came no one was disappointed. It was a 
torrid battle, but experience turned the tide in favor of Miss 
Wolf. The score was 8-6, 5-7, 6-2. 

The battle of No. 2 women was also close with the Philo 
Kletzing winning in straight sets 6-4, 6-4. 

In the final match the Thalo substitute, Turbeville, was no 
match for Wolf who won in a romp 6-0, 6-4. 

Due to the lack of time the fourth and fifth matches of 
both the Men's and Women's series were not played. How- 
ever, they would have had no bearing on the outcome. 




Page Sixty-eight 




Philos Win In Hard/ 
fought Series 

The baseball series this spring 
required the full five games to 
decide the issue in favor of the 
Philos. The playing, although 
ragged in spots, was quite good. 
Three of the five games were de- 
cided by one run which shows 
the closeness of the series better 
than any words could describe. 

The smooth play of the Philo 
infield provided the margin of 
victory in the series. The play 
of both Philo and Thalo outfields 
showed marked improvement 
over the play of previous years. 
There was just one error com- 
mitted by the combined outfields 
on a fly ball. 

Musselman was the outstand- 
ing star for the Philos, playing 

consistent ball in the field and leading his team at bat with an average of 
.363. Griswold and Bauer played their usual brilliant ball both in the field 
and at bat. Campbell's pitching was unbeatable when he had a good day. 

For the Thalos Norton was the key man. He batted .434 for the series 
and pitched good ball throughout. Coldiron, with a batting average of .400, 
and Tyler, who played errorless ball in the field, were the other Thalo 
heroes. 

The score of the first game was 7-6 in favor of the Philos. But even 
that score doesn't show the closeness of the game. The winning run was 
scored in the ninth inning on a single, two stolen bases, and an error. 

The second game was a Thalo walk-away. Norton held the Philo bat- 
ters under control from the first, and the Thalos were never pushed. 10-2 
was the score. 

It took fourteen innings to decide the third game. The 
Thalos had what seemed a safe lead of 7-2 at the beginning 
of the eighth inning. But Philo determination overcame this 
lead to win eventually 10-9. 

The fourth game was nearly the opposite of the third as 
the Philos lost 7-6 in regulation time after going into the 
seventh inning with a three run lead. This game was featured 
by some fine catches in the outfield. 

The fifth and deciding game was a distinct disappoint- 
ment as far as thrills are concerned. The Philos proved them- 
selves a championship outfit by stepping out and winning 13-4 
behind the superb pitching of Campbell, and the steadiness of 
the ever-present Philo infield.

Letter Men 

Form Club 

To Promote 

Athletics 



This school year has brought to you and me, as students of Taylor, an 
unusual interest in athletics. Society and class athletics have added more 
than their customary quota to the sum total of this activity, and in addition 
there have been occasional rumors of the possibility of games with other 
schools. 

Another factor that has given luster to Taylor's program this year has 
been the awarding of letters for athletic attainment. A plan for this award 
has been worked out by Coach A. H. Cornwell, and under the terms of this 
plan ten men and four women were rewarded this year. 

As soon as these awards were announced the men so honored organized 
a "T" club. The idea is to work out this club much on the same plan as it 
is used in other schools. Its definite aims and ideals are to meet best the 
individual problems that Taylor faces in its athletic program, and so to 
direct its efforts as to cooperate most fully with the Director of Physical 
Education in solving these problems. 

To illustrate the place we hope the club will fill in Taylor's life, let us 
consider some of its objectives. One of the best of these is the placing in 
the trophy case of a trophy for yearly award to the individual selected as 
best exemplifying Taylor's standards of Christian sportsmanship and team 
play. 

Another plan is the working out of some method of properly preserv- 
ing the athletic records of the school, while still another is the improvement 
of the equipment of the athletic department by cooperation with the Coach 
in hard work and wise purchasing. 

The members of the "T" Club feel that there is much that can be done 
to improve the athletic situation at Taylor and they are losing no time in 
effecting some immediate remedies. In the past there has never been a 
united feeling, among the students, in support of the school. This has been 
largely due to the division created by the two Literary Societies, but it is 
felt that some friendly competition with neighboring colleges will do much 
to relieve this situation. With this in view several engagements have been 
made this spring for baseball games, tennis and track meets. 

Another important event was the revision of the daily schedule so that 
all classes are completed by four o'clock in the afternoon. This makes it 
possible for every student to engage in some form of recreation daily. This 
measure has been greeted with great enthusiasm by the entire student bodv. 

In conclusion, the members of the club know that we already have 
many organizations, but they also feel that this is a field not adequately 
covered by any other, and that there is a place of helpfulness that can be 
filled by such an organization.

The 1933 Gem Blotter, miniatured above, was printed in four { 
colors : white, blue, pink, and canary. They were placed on each 

student's desk three times during the year. Though serving effi- I 

ciently in their primary function as a blotter, they were designed to I 
aid students by providing them with lists of important school dates 

and basketball schedules. i

Housewife: If you love work, 
why don't you find it? 

Tramp : Alas, lady, love is blind. 

Roy Smith, walking interestedly 
into a soldier who was digging a 
hole: Digging a trench, my good 
man? 

Cubbison (now in the army) : 
No, I'm digging a grave. One of 
our rookies just passed away. We 
were on the rifle range and the 
Captain told us to hold our breath 
while pulling the trigger on the 
rifle. This lads rifle was old and 
rusty, and the trigger stuck, and 
there you have it.

Coldiron to any girl : By logic I 
can prove that you love me. 
I love you 

AM the world loves a lover 
But I am a lover 

Therefore all the world loves me 
You are all the world to me 
Therefore you love me. 

Helen Walhof (having received 
a beautful set of mink skins from 
Lyle) : What I don't see is how 
such wonderful furs can come 
from such a low, sneaking, little 
beast. 

Lyle: I don't ask for thanks, 
dear, but I really insist on respect. 

Marg. Kleinef eld : How can one 
tell the imitation pearls from the 
real ones?

not tell — you just keep it to your- 
self.

a language as a gargle.

Harry Griffiths: May I call you 
by your first name? 

Grace : By your last name, if you 
wish. 

Wiskeman : Talking of hens re- 
minds me of an old hen my uncle 
had once. She would hatch out 
anything from a tennis ball to a 
lemon. Why, one clay she sat on a 
piece of ice and hatched out two 
quarts of hot water. 

Stokes : That doesn't come up to 
the club-footed hen my mother 
once had. They had been feeding 
her by mistake on sawdust instead 
of oatmeal. Well, sir, she laid 
twelve eggs and sat on them, and 
when they hatched eleven of the 
chickens had wooden legs and the 
twelfth was a woodpecker. 

Rice : Are you good at your 
work? I am very particular about

you can see for yourself. 

Prof. Furbay: What animal 
makes the nearest approach to 
man?

payments. 



Page Eighty-five 



Griswold : Where would you ad- 
vise me to go to take singing 
lessons? 

Prof. Steucke : Oh, to any thinly 
populated district. 

Don Kenyon : How unworthy I 
am of you, dear. 

Isabel : Oh, Don, if you and 
father only agreed on everything 
the way you do on that, how happy 
we would be." 

Frances Grace: Why don't you 
stop talking when I look at you? 
Howard Witner : I ain't no clock. 

Louise Cline: Your sister sings 
with a lot of feeling. 

Lois Coby : Well, I hope she isn't 
feeling as bad as it sounds. 

Clerk: We can't pay you the 
twenty-five dollars on this money 
order until you are identified. 

John English: That's tough. 
There's only one man in town who 
can identify me and I owe him 
twenty. 

John McCreery : Don't charge 
so much for the coat. Remember 
the cheaper it is, the less I shall 
owe you.

language?

ped it in the bud.

You know you told me to put that 
piece of wedding cake under my 
pillow and I'd dream of my future 
husband. 

Eliza: Yes, did it work? 

Helen : That's what worries me. 
I dreamed of the Seventy-first 
regiment. 

Ty : I must look in the book to 
see where we can go on our va- 
cation. 

Clara : You mean a resort 
directory? 

Ty : No, my bank book. 

Ardath : Tomorrow is Phil's 
birthday. 

Athalia : Are you going to give 
him anything? 

Ardath : Yes, a good strong hint. 

Manley, after waiting in a con- 
fectionery store for about ten min- 
utes grew grossly impatient at the 
lack of service. Finally he rapped 
sharply on the counter. "Here, 
young lady," he called, "who waits 
on the nuts?" 

Arthur Goldenbogen was pretty 
sick and the doctor gave him a box 
of four pills to take before meals. 
When asked how he was feeling he 
said, "Not so good. It must be 
that the cover hasn't come off the 
box yet."

ing around the harem?" inquired

mer beau of your latest favorite

second fiddle to him," replied the 
chief eunich.

guard to hang up the fiddle and the 
beau."

Coldiron, taking Civil Service 
examination : A dead letter is one 
that has died at its post. 

Miss Cline : Who was it who said, 
'I have come to bury Caesar, not to 
praise him?' 

Gordon Herrmann : It must 
have been the undertaker. 

Esta Herrmann : Is it true that 
a person feels younger as he goes 
West? 

Alice Jensen : I know a girl who 
went to California and every time 
she would stop on the way out 
there she would write a card back 
saying that she felt ten years 
younger. The last time we heard 
she had died of infantile paralysis. 

Joe Gates was preaching the 
funeral sermon of an executed 
man ; after telling all of the merits 
of this particular person he said : 
"This man did not suffer long by 
sickness, he died immediately, some 
one pressed a button and summer- 
ized him. 



York : Freddie, what's the mat- 
ter with your eyes?

Vosburg : Some waitress threw a 
sugar bowl at me.

othy, you must make that check 
last longer than that." 

Kruschwitz (to an old lady) : 
May I accompany you across the 
street, madam? 

Old Lady : Certainly, sonny. How 
long have you been waiting for 
somebody to take you across? 

Prof. Furbay : What is the high- 
est form of animal life? 
Miss Emmert : The giraffe ! 



Page Eighty-seven 



Gertrude Trickett: While I ap- 
preciate the honor of your proposal 
of marriage, circumstances beyond 
my control compel me to decline. 

Wesley: What are those cir- 
cumstances? 

Gertrude : Yours. 

Miss Cline : What is there to 
substantiate the opinion that 
Shakespeare was a prophet?

w T ho owned the car in front of me 
and the one who owned the car 
back of me. They had me so I 
couldn't get out.

ner I had at your house last night.

me away last night. 

Dennis: How's that?

windows in your bedroom last 
night as I told you to? 

Chappell : Well, doctor, I just 
have one window in my room so I 
opened it twice. 

Eugene Pittman had been 
reading an article in a magazine 
telling about the death rate and he 
was much impressed. Turning to 
Cleo Speake he remarked : Do you 
know, every time I breath a person 
dies? 

Cleo sniffed and replied : Why 
don't you take something for it? 

Harrison Dawes : Next to a beau- 
tiful girl what do you consider the 
most interesting thing in the 
world. 

Glenn Phipps : Whenever I'm 
next to a beautiful girl I never 
bother about statistics. 

Ilene Niebel : You say Lorena 
Porter was made wealthy through 
a sudden upturn in oil? What oil 
did she buy? 

Miriam Pugh : She didn't buy 
any stock. A rich old aunt tried 
to start a fire with a can of it and 
it went up. 

John Betzold : Why is a police- 
man like a broken chair? 

DeWitt Fowler: You'll have to 
tell me. 

John : Because both will pinch 
you if you don't park right. 

Bob Weaver : That fellow just 
told me that if I would smoke 
1,000 of his cigars I would get a 
piano, but I told him by that time 
I would need a harp. 

Stan Boughton: How's that? 

Bob : Oh, it would be so much 
easier to carry around in my busi- 
ness. 



Olive Tatem : It took seven sit- 
tings. 

Ruth Tabberer : You mean you 
have had your portrait painted? 

Olive: No, I've been learning to 
skate. 

Mrs. Stuart : What did the editor 
tell you when you submitted your 
poem to him. 

Elizabeth : He said he couldn't 
print it because he was out of 
poetry type. 

Doctor : Don't be so despondent, 
my dear young lady, you'll soon 
pull through. 

Rowena Walker : Oh, it isn't 
that Doctor, but just think of the 
money I've spent on apples to keep 
you away. 

Miss Dare (to waitress) : So 
Sears has found something fresh 
to complain about this morning? 

Waitress : No, madam, it's the 
eggs. 

Bob Jacobs : By the simple move- 
ment of the hand that man puts 
thousands of employees to work 
and as easily dismisses them. 

Walter Martin : What is he pres- 
ident or superintendent? 

Bob : Neither, he blows the fac- 
tory whistle. 

Karl Keith : I'm afraid you're in 
the wrong seat, old fellow. 

Paul Lewis: You don't need to 
be afraid. That is, unless you are 
thinking of making me move. 

Nelson Bastian : I hear that 
Evelyn Shaw crashed the gates at 
Hollywood. 

Howard Fox : On the screen 
now, eh? 

Nelson : No, in the hospital — she 
was just learning to drive.
